We are located in NW Pennsylvania about 100 miles from Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Cleveland. We are a small Christian family run business. We pack and ship orders 6 days a week. We do not smoke. We strongly support the American worker. Many of our fabrics are made in the USA.

Yardage Minimum yardage is one eighth yard. It would be 4.5" by the width of the fabric. The width is typically listed on each fabric, but is most always 60" wide. When a weight is indicated, the weight represents a square meter. All fabrics should be washed prior to cutting, they will shrink. Each batch should be tested for shrink rate.

B. and we are not Responsible for freight. Nor are we responsible for miss deliveries, duty taxes or international charges. If the tracking says it was delivered to your address, postal declarations take precedence. If make 2 separate orders at the same time, we will combine them and not ship until everything is ready.

Pre-Orders Sometimes we will offer a pre-order on a fabric. We will clearly note in the description the arrival date for the fabric. It is always my intention to give you actual dates, but it not something I have control of. I am at the mercy of the supplier and customs, and will try to keep everyone posted as best I can. late arrivals are common and please allow an extra 10-12 days for late arrivals.

Continuous Yardage If we run in to an issue filling the yardage as one piece we will contact you. 

Quality Control Every effort is made to buy the very best quality fabrics that our money can buy. On occasion, specials come through that are very appealing, and because of the price and type of material, I am willing to overlook characteristics that I normally would not allow. There may be some dirt or marks along the selvages or folds, but since it is a hard to find fabric, I overlook that. The goods will be priced accordingly, and will be noted if I see it. I never want to send fabrics that are less than what they are described. You work hard for your money, and I want you to get the very best fabric, and best prices we can offer. Testing It is the buyer's responsibility to test and sample the goods before cutting or altering to meet specific requirements, performance standards, or applications especially for color-fastness, shrinkage, sew able, stretch, weight/yield, and general appearance. This fabric does not meet the flammability standards for children's sleepwear ABSOLUTELY NO RETURNS WILL BE ACCEPTED OR ALLOWANCES MADE AFTER GOODS HAVE BEEN CUT OR ALTERED FROM ORIGINAL DELIVERED FORM.  You have 7 days from arrival of goods to measure and check the fabric. No allowances will be made after that time. Please note that package weight noted at shipping takes precendence. So, if you feel you are shorted, we will use shipping weight to determine shortages. Roll Buying: If you are ordering rolls I am told that industry standard is plus or minus 15% on yardage. If you order and pay for a 40 yard roll, if the mill tells me it is 40 yards then that is what I am billed for and in turn what I will bill you for. You can be sure that 3 people can measure a roll of fabric and not come up with the same yardage. Please check all yardage immediately, returns are only considered with in 7 days. We are not responsible for labor if damaged goods are sewn. If you are hesitant about ordering because of that you can order a roll  and for the retail price I can measure and weigh and get it shipped to you. Shipping would apply. All defective materials must be returned in order to obtain a credit. 

Shrinking is expected and is common. I would expect 10% at least, though we have seen more in some fabrics.
